New MacBook Pro event preview, Apple Watch Series 7 reviews, and more on the AppleInsider podcast

On the AppleInsider Podcast, your hosts discuss new high-end MacBook Pro models and AirPods expected at Apple's "Unleashed" event, initial reviews of Apple Watch Series 7, iPhone 13 Pro case options, and more.

Apple will hold its second Fall event on Monday, October 18 at 10 a.m. Pacific Time (1 p.m. Eastern) titled, "Unleashed". We expect to finally see the unveiling of high-end Apple Silicon in new 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. Several strong rumors have pointed to there beinglegacy port options in addition to USB-C, mini LED displays, and updated cameras.

We may also see an updated, high-end Mac mini with additional color options, ports, and a chassis redesign. Listen out of a special AppleInsider podcast after the event, for a special recap episode covering everything Apple announces.

Next, the initial reviews of Apple Watch Series 7 released earlier this week, especially noting the larger display size and faster charging capability. Whether existing users should upgrade to the new model, though, largely depends on the age and battery health of currently owned Apple Watch models.

Just weeks after the launch of iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, users have many choices for their preferred case. We review Apple's own Silicone and Leather Cases while noting several quality third party options.

Apple updated their Apple Support app with support for AppleCare+ Express Replacement, state digital ID coming to additional locations, and we highlight some of our favorite power banks for travel.
